Bach’s mighty retelling of the Passion of Christ is a powerful meditation on death and spirituality that speaks to all of us at a deeply human level, regardless of religious affiliation. It is a profoundly moving story of betrayal, sacrifice, and forgiveness, told through some of the most sublime music ever written.

To perform it for us, a truly stellar cast of singers led by one of the supreme choral conductors of our time, Stephen Layton, making a welcome return to the APO. This promises to be a very special event in Auckland’s calendar.

Pre-concert talk by Richard Green at 7:15 pm in the concert chamber.
